Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Simba previously lived with adults and children of all ages. The owner stated Simba is a very independent; he is usually fine with the children. The owners mentioned when around strangers Simba would bare back and freeze but after some time Simba will warm up. It was reported by the owner Simba has a previous bite history. The owner stated her son and Simba were playing; the son reached for the water bowl and then the dog bit the left side of the son’s face. The owner mentioned her son was taken to the hospital for 9 stiches. At intake it was reported Simba allowed some handling. Simba came into the assessment room nervous, tense and panting, he was not interested in interacting with the assessor. Simba displayed a stiff body posture when attempting to conduct look item, for safety concerns the behavior department choose to skip the handling the portion of the assessment. He displayed no interest in the toy resource item during this portion of the assessment. During his dog-to-dog interaction, Simba approached the helper dog with his tail at spine level and body soft. In light of this behavior we feel that placement with a New Hope partner who can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification is the best option at this time. Toy 1: No interest. Dog-dog: 2. Dog approaches helper dog with tail at spine level, body soft, ears relaxed, and lip neutral. Helper dog: A1080882
